Booking to attend Mass
Under the rules for the current lockdown, Catholic Churches can remain open for the celebration of Mass providing steps are taken to keep people safe. St Francis Church will be holding Mass on Sunday as usual during this time. If this should change at short notice, you will be informed when you try to book a place.
If you want to attend Mass on Sunday, you must email by 6pm on Wednesday, stating how many places you would like. If space is available, you will receive the offer of a place by Thursday evening. You must reply to accept your places and confirm you are symptom free.
Anyone without email, can call 07901 166218 between 9am and 5pm Monday to Wednesday.
The Franciscan will only be available electronically until further notice. It will be emailed to everyone who has an email address on the Parish Register.

The virtual parish gathering (Vurch) will continue through Zoom on Sundays at 11am.
